Explore with me the old Mill District and Mississippi Riverfront through the eyes of a local transportation aficionado. Together we will walk through the neighborhood and I will show you details you never would have noticed about the walking experience. We will meet on the west bank of the Mississippi and walk down the old streetcar corridor, watch bicyclists ride down the brand new bike lanes, see several new types of pedestrian infrastructure in the neighborhood. Then we'll take our walk to the riverfront, where the history of Minneapolis shines and locals stroll every day of the year. Here you can see the unique heritage of walking and biking trails in the Minneapolis Park System and its crown jewel, the Stone Arch Bridge. Across the river, we'll see cobblestone streets and peak into the subtle design features that make the new developments pedestrian friendly. Finally, we'll make our way back to the West Bank and get scoop of some of the best ice cream in town or a local brew to rest our feet! (about 2.6 miles of walking total, which at a leisurely pace and plenty of opportunities to rest along the way should last around 1.5 hours)
I’m a young professional in the transportation field with a key eye for details of streets and how they impact urban life. I’ve lived in Minneapolis for three and a half years, getting my degree in Urban Studies with a concentration in Infrastructure and Environment. I've been a citizen advocate on street design projects, co-hosted a mayoral forum on transportation issues in 2017 and have spent over 100 hours volunteering to support better pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure. I've also done research on street infrastructure types in NYC, India, Brazil and South Africa.

We will be in the old Mill District and Minneapolis Riverfront area. Filled with architectural character, classic and modern transportation infrastructure and excellent people (and dog!) watching. We'll touch on Gold Medal Park, the Guthrie Theatre for a special view, the buzzing Stone Arch Bridge, and all the lovely streets in between. This area is truly one of the most beautiful to see on foot.

Don’t forget to dress for the weather (I advise layers!) and be in comfy shoes! Look for me with brown, mid-length hair, glasses, and a smile.
